hahaha, ok, so, I went to the starbucks opening at the mall today and a local singing group wrote a song especially for the occasion, something like, "frappuccinos, cappuccinos and deserts, something something, we're gonna treat you right!" so if you hear it on a commercial in future, it all started at the mall at marathon in the bahamas!
I love my dad but with my mother feeling so sick all of the time, he tends to drag me to all of these work functions so I basically sat on the sidelines drinking samples (white mochas are da bomb) while he congratulated everyone "on behalf of the mall". which is fine...but i wish my mother was able to get out more. i know that her back bothers her but she has, by choice, dropped out of the public eye entirely. people don't even know that she is alive/still married to my father. we are more than willing to make allowances for her discomfort. i will personally drive her home if it hurts too much. heck, she walks 10 miles every morning but won't spend 10 minutes at a social function. i know im being hard on her, but what is a diary for if not for all the dark little thoughts that pop up in your head every day?
i saw hairspray afterward, which was great...surprisingly...and now i feel all motivated to make changes. i also feel better about my situation. someday someone will love me for who i am ^^. it may not be soon but it will happen and i will be happy. everything takes time.

busy busy busy day yesterday. I had lunch with claire and drove around for a few hours. I had dinner with emma and her family and then left early to go over to paradise island for a comedy show with matt and ross. Then this morning I went to the trainer and nearly died. it never gets any easier...

went out in the boat today for a bit. inhaled gallons of sea water trying to wake board but it was still a good time.i finally got my license which is amazing. it's a kind of freedom that i have never experienced before, even when living away from home.

on an unrelated note....3 guys have recently expressed having deep feelings for me, one of whom told me that he was in love with me. i guess i should be happy but seriously, this is getting ridiculous. im not that attractive or desirable. in any case...that one guy is just confused. he certainly doesn't love me. this is all just insane. can something make sense? please? im spending so much more time trying to let them down easy, mend broken egos and reading soppy notes and messages than i am trying to find someone i am going to date. maybe i dont really want to date. i dont know...no one ever said that life and love were easy. it's not too much to hope for i suppose...it's like heads or tails...you never know what the outcome will be...but your gut tells you something and, even though you have no control, you bet on it and hope that fate breathes some life into your belief.

there are so many things that make us bolder, make us older, make us wiser. But if we could just find the time to unwind and unbind and discover something new in ourselves, something hidden in the backs of our minds, we might just realize that underneath it all, where it really matters, we are in flux. Every change to our range of emotions, every dip in the daily routine, every question, every hope, every challenge is merely momentary. If we are bold then there is a place in us for cowardice and for hesitation, if we are old then at times we must act younger than we are and if we are wiser than we were before, then there was a time when we made mistakes, answered for them, and struggled to connect all of the dots. Every minute marks the beginning of who we really are. We run a race with an identity swinging just beyond our reach. We run through sand and mud, through fires and forests and then, just when we can run no more, when we have tripped too many times and fallen into too many ruts, we almost find ourselves. In the meantime we have travelled so far, changed so much, become so much stronger, so much faster, so much more. We are scarred and tired and radiant and broken. And yet, through it all, we have looked only at ourselves,swaying before our eyes, promising nothing and everything and never changing: or so it seems. We spend our whole lives chasing a mirror, asking answers of ourselves.

ok..so...my ex (datingfor 3 years) is dating someone new. I'm...ok with it? I was excited that he moved on wo i could stop hoping that he would change his ways and come back...even though i left him in the end...but he honestly asked me what his chances for a booty call would be...and told me how much he wanted/loved me....without being willing to reaffirm the committment. oh lord...men. I really have had enough, i never want to be with a guy again so he can't use the "men have needs" excuse. Besides, girls are much more attractive and approachable. surprisingly...as long as he doesn't throw it in my face....im ok....^^...whoa...topic jump...urgh....tired mind.

haha, ok, so we're all at the gp and nothing is happening...at all. everyone is downing drinks left and right but absolutely NOTHING interesting is happening. So...what do emma and I do? we take her course schedule from last year, find an empty spot in the parking lot and light it on fire, dancing around in a sort of euphoric haze. Meanwhile, we are both sober and 18 (or there abouts) heading towards our respective medical fields. My, my, will we ever grow up? do i want us to? no. it is so wonderful to have someone like her around! she's fun and outgoing and isn't afraid to be crazy when people are looking! does it help that i find her incredibly attractive? probably. don't get me wrong...i feel only friendly towards her....but my lord....what a perfect body. if she wasn't already with someone....maybe i'm ready to move on?

hmm...well the american types had a blast today. The hotels put on some light shows for the tourists and we climbed to the top of the bridge to watch. I can't wait for the 10th though!!! I have my outfit all picked out! blue jeans, black tank top and yellow low cut over shirt....you didn't need to know that but it makes me happy. I pledge to be better about crap relationships by independence day! hmm...6 days....beautiful...also...no more frappuccinos....bad sarah, very bad. i lost like....20 lbs. though...the before and after pics are nuts. i still can't eat normal amounts of food though....i get so insanely sick. so half a sandwich today and a salad. which isn't bad actually....and a frappuccino...which is. you know...i am going to start a list of things that make me happy....not that DID make me happy, but that actually do...i'll post it when it gets long enough. go try on some clothes and slip a happy idea into the pocket of every outfit you try on. make someone else's day ^^

i'm usually a firm believer in the fact that, no matter what is going on in my life, I can handle it. If the work is too much, then I'm not trying hard enough. If I'm tired or hurried or stressed then I am simply not managing my time well. I am imperfect but I can handle tough times.
That being said...I need help. I'm not even doing anything and I am a wreck. I graduated cum laude, 5th in my class of 163, going to a prestigious college, getting a job at a good company, thoroughly enjoying my time spent volunteering on weekends and I'm losing control. I can't be burnt out, I know I can handle it all because it's really not that much. But all the time I feel awful, worthless, out of control. SometimesI feel wonderful, like nothing can touch me and only I impose my limits, but those moments are few and far between.
Have you ever needed someome? Just help in picking up the pieces and putting them back in place? And not just someone on the sidelines giving advice but a friend who will go out of their way, put down whatever they are doing and give you a strong, willing hand? I should be able to do this myself but my coping mechanisms have become down right self-destructive and it seems like I'm caught in this vicious cycle that everyone seems willing to ignore. I can't do this on my own. I can't ask anyone to help me as it its NOT their job. I can't go for outside help since my parents won't fund it. I should be able to do this on my own since I have no other option. but what if I can't? What then?!?! What in hell am I supposed to do?! There is nothing and everything wrong and I have the sneaking suspicion that this is all in my head. Wouldn't that be wonderful? "Sorry thatI don't make perfect sense today and I simply can't manage to live throughanother houralone because I am clinically insane!"...I would be miserable. AM I alone? Am I secretly self-obsessed and abnormal? If I am losing control, will I survive the crash? Anyone else feel this way?

i am in pain. beware of personal trainers. sometimes they catch you at the store eating a chocolate kiss. sometimes they decide that you need to work harder the next day. sometimes you would rather die than move even your pinkie finger.

sometimes these hypothetical situations become anything but hypothetical.

reality can be a bitch.

W00t! so, going out to Senor Frog's tonight! After having dinner at my ex (not Connor)'s house with his new gf....o.O ? Should be interesting......and then Green Parrot. I love living here...The only problem being that...well....not a problem really but still....I lost a lot of weight recently and none of my clothes fit aaand I went out to buy new clothes but, because of where I live, I can only find very, very scandalous outfits.....and now I have to have dinner with Mrs. Clark in a shirt that screams "LOOK AT MY CHEST" .......I suppose it could be worse.

Also, ha HA! I am no longer depressed! The past two weeks have been utter shit. It's good to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. (Although, supposedly I have another month (two weeks for every year we have been dating) before I'm ready to actually move on.) I hope I reach my wide open range soon...

hmm...I've made all my posts private again...you can still find public entries with a well worded yahoo search. be careful.

But I wouldn't mind others seeing this particular post...

I don't know. I've spent too long looking at the dark side of life. I've been focusing on mistakes instead of trying to make them better. I want that to change. I started volunteering again and I'm going to a personal trainer and going out with friends. Normal teenage activities....not moping around the house because of an ex. Even thoughI do still love him and deeply care for him.

There's enough anger out there. It's time to share a little love. Even if it doesn't change the world, I guarantee you, it's worth it.
